Graphic design majors are required to complete one mandatory internship and are encouraged to intern as often as they are able. The students partner with the Career Development Center and a Graphic Design faculty member as they work. Internship locations include design firms, advertising agencies, and industries with in-house design departments. Check back often for updates.
